Garvin led the top-ranked Dons (4-0) to a 35-14 victory over Fork Union Military Academy, a Virginia prep school powerhouse that has a couple of Division I-bound players and some fifth-year 19-year olds. Garvin, a 6-foot-2, 200-pound junior running back-defensive back, rushed for 164 yards and two touchdowns on 21 attempts. Both of Garvin's touchdown runs - from 2 and 38 yards out - came in the second half. His second score gave the Dons a 28-14 lead with 9:15 left in the game. It answered a Fork Union score that had pulled the visitors within seven points. Garvin, whose four-game season totals are 375 yards and seven touchdowns rushing on 44 carries - 8.5 yards per attempt - credits his offensive line for his success. On defense, Garvin made four tackles and knocked down a pass against Fork Union. He has 13 tackles and the batted pass in four games for the defending tri-champions of the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference.
